The Moon

Review for the Moon:

The Moon is what happens when two first rate free-jazz musicians indulge their obsessions with late-60’s psychedelic sounds, noise-based improvisation and 20th-century classical abstraction. 

Adam Caine (guitar) and Federico Ughi (drums) are both veterans of the New York City jazz scene, both having led bands and released numerous albums on their own. The cohesive, highly dynamic sound of The Moon has developed through extensive touring: they exhibit a willingness to ‘get in the van’ unusual for Brooklyn-based jazz groups.  

In 2013 they toured with New York free-jazz legend Daniel Carter as special guest, and in early 2014 they traveled to Tangier to play with masters of traditional Moroccan Gnawa music.

Roy Exum: Al Sharpton’s Wise Remarks

I’ll admit I paid little more than scant attention to the Monday funeral of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old who was shot and killed by police bullets in Ferguson, Mo., after he allegedly was involved in strong-armed robbery. There are too many tawdry details and, in my way of thinking, there is nothing under God’s sun, absolutely nothing, that gives others the right to riot, burn ... (click for more)
